    DevMenu installation is horribly slow. I heard BigRedMenu is faster.
    Still, it should be faster than that. Are you sure your SD card is original?

    Yeah, I'm a bit afraid that this is a fake one.

    Maybe I should return it..

    I'm formatting the card rn to fat32 with a speed of 23-24 MB/s, it will takr around 30 minutes. Is that normal?

    That is bahavior of a fake card. I'd send it back if I were you. Real cards take mere seconds to format even 32GB and 64GB format under 30 seconds on a Windows PC. Sometimes it actually is worth paying full-price for a legit SD card. I never buy mine online, always Walmart. I can buy a 32GB card for around $24 flat. (I get a 10% employee discount, but it only takes off the tax).

    Copying a 3.6 gb files to the sd card took around 2 minute with a speed of 27MB/s, this is using my laptop built-in card reader.

    If this is fake I'm gonna complain tomorrow and see if I can get my money back.

    BBB on O3DS is slow as hell, but that is too much perhaps.
    It took around 10h for me to install 30GB of CIAs on a completely legit Samsung EVO Class 10 microSD with adapter.
    This same card tops the USB2 speed on my laptop at around 30MB/s.
    Anyway your card is topping the USB2 speed on your notebook too, it can't go faster because that bottleneck (and it is already going VERY fast).
    I don't think your card is fake, but your O3DS is a slow PoS (like very O3DS).
    Let it install and go watch some movie, party, and etc. Be used to the gatewaiting.

    If I remember correctly, I installed the fantasy life cia (around 800-1gb iirc)

    And it didn't take that long either..

    BigBlueMenu is not slow in the slightest, I don't know where people are getting their info from. Ryo_kun format the card using sdformatter then run it through h2testw to ensure the card has no errors and is not fake.

    Idk, copying file is fast and all, but installing cia is reaaally slow. And is this supposed to be stuck like this when installing? http://m.imgur.com/aZHrkgH
